When the Republican National Convention (RNC) in Cleveland takes place in July, you won’t get the sort of political correctness and pandering you usually get in an election year — especially not with Kid Rock in the house.
As one of the few music stars who has unabashedly touted his passion for Donald Trump, Kid Rock has agreed to take the stage at the Cleveland Rocks 2016 event on the last night of the RNC on July 21. Back in February, Kid Rock told “Rolling Stone” he was “digging” Donald Trump.
“Let the [bleeping] business guy run it like a [bleeping] business,” Kid Rock said at the time. “And his campaign has been entertaining as [bleep].”
While the show is not an officially sanctioned convention event, it is somewhat of an unofficial arm of the festivities. Its close political affiliation was enough to sway Joe Walsh into canceling his performance at the beginning of the convention and keep Cheap Trick from accepting $100,000 to play.
